Your Gaillardias are very showy aren't they Marrion. I planted them in the front garden because they don't need much attention or as much watering and they do make a bright show but I would love them to look as lush as yours.
Can you tell me the proper name of the tyoe of catmint that cats go nuts over? A friend told me that there is one that they ignore and one that they love, but she couldn't tell me the names. I would like to plant some for my cat. She rubs against things in the garden and comes back smelling of perfume often. She also comes back covered in plumbago flowers stuck in her fur. Boy are they tough to take out. Scamper.

The catmint that cats like is the one called "catnip" its botanical name is Nepeta cataria.
